these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve
in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a
of the joint chiefs of staff and the defense secretary finally statedding the obvious. >> it was a terrorist attack. as we determined details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear there were terrorists who planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. >> day after or was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on t

. it is not a good feeling. the defense minister says that when it comes to military spending, the iron dome defense system, remember this is not the first time that egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israeli embassy eight months ago. this is the second time in one year that in egypt embassy is fair game. the prime minister called obama immediately and obama got on of holland -- the phone and said, do something about this. protect these people. she will routinely say that this is the best president in american history in terms of support for israel. in terms of military spending, we have never got more support. but if you ask people on the street, they have a very different reading of the feelings of obama to israel. >> i had taken the position up until recently that israel should not be an issue in the race because the parties are both supportive of israel. it should relate to the domestic issues where there is clear cleavage between the two. that has been my position. i don't think that anyone can rightly say that president obama is the best president. i think reagan was. i think s
grants. one is in the same-sex marriage cases, the defense of marriage cases and the proposition 8 cases and the other is in the voting rights cases. both of these are likely to be taken on by the courts. we don't know how they will play out because they have not to grant uncertainty in these cases yet. i think they also share some interesting aspects, and those on the relationship between the state and a federal government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c
administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world in terms of explaining what happened. virtually every
the case that the best defense is a better economy. >> in battle ground virginia both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery. romney slammed the president for the defense cuts coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility.
of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so
in the world and he will be viewed as a great visionary >> jon: full throated defense of the value of democracy >> the meade cora and our government, democracy. this is a good thing. and i'm sitting here saying, all right. what is going to take over? it was obviously the muslim brotherhood was the only group that had any political clout. >> jon: young not as fat you. all right. i guess you can't just let people depots their own dictators in the name of democracy. >> we have at least some hope for peace in the middle east and democracy. certainly better than what they have. >> jon: i got to tell you something. i love it when that conservative patriot guy pulls on that naive leftist deutch bag. what's the name of that show in hannity and takes the opposite position the younger hannity. it's a great show. that's great television. now listen to me, we could go all night. we could go all night bringing up examples of pundits on the right who couldn't do enough to promote democracy in the middle east as long as it was done at the end of george bush's jaunt. as middle eastern countries choose leaders
.s. department of defense and most importantly for our purposes is that he travels frequently to libya. so without further ado, we are going to go in the order when should i have and just the people and we will start with fred and then move on. >> thank you very much. is really a symptom of a larger problem of the government's instability and marginalization in the eastern region of libya. it is known as sarah nay labarga in every. comprises the three territories you see on the map, the eastern half of the country. this is a periphery of libya but in the eyes of easterners especially people in benghazi, the key should not be the periphery. it should not be on the margins of governance. they see this region is really the engine of historical change in the country that was really overturned by qadhafi. political resources and economic resources. after all this was a region with the defeat of the dynasty and where omar muqtedar waged his battle against the -- and trying from eastern families and of course there was epicenter of the 2011 revolt and most recently now his been the epicenter of t
a country where there has been no military or defense or no civilian oversight. and the chief of staff is doing an excellent job at the moment in terms of asserting authority given the limitation of the army. but at the same time there's no effective civilian way for that the. very quickly the issue of military. that's the biggest problem. we have people who have no experience. and the affairs they are assigned to. with the min stir of defense it has beened because he is [inaudible] he became a defense minister. you have the military itself. is the middle of the bureaucrats who don't like to get anything done at any level. so anything comes from the top anything coming from the bottom up so you have and we had a long conversation on -- [inaudible] , you know, ambassador stephens he was complaining we were [inaudible] but the libyans are not taking and nay don't know how to incorporate the help they ask for and we are offering. and so the question was what can be done? you have to develop channels. i think task forces that deal with specific things that go around the bypass the bureaucr
is incompetent or she purposely misled. the reason simon and obama administration are so defensive on the your show today right now is because for months they have been gloating about how barack obama kept us safe and there have been no terrorist attacks on his watch. well, guess what, there was just a terrorist attack on his watch. we got hit at u.s. embassy, the first american ambassador killed since 1979 on his watch on the anniversary of september 11, 2001. this stuff about how george bush let 9/11 happen and barack obama kept us safe and no catastrophic attacks on his watch, the only reason we haven't had another 9/11 on the watch because a bomb on plane malfunctioned on detroit. that was not foiled terrorist attack. the bomb malfunctioned. they got through our defenses and the fact is that as steve hayes has been reporting today in the, in the "weekly standard", they lied about that one too. three days after that attack they said it was a lone, a lone man when we now know it was an attack by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. said after times square bombing it was a lone man acting alone
issues, attacking the president on sequestration, the looming defense budget cuts effectively linking defense and national security to the economy which has been his primary message. the campaign has been flooding reporters with numbers and he mentioned them today, suggesting that sequestration cuts would effectively have an impact on 168,000 jobs, costing 168,000 jobs in the state. he said 136,000, 68,000 among small businesses specifically. and he was here with people in this critical battleground who he said have been to battle before. these are people in the military community, a lot of veterans here at american legion hall where he was speaking that he hopes will support his message of american strength through strength and not through weakness militarily. >> i have been a little puzzled by the campaign's posture on this because it was a republican and democratic agreement, the automatic triggers for these automatic cuts from sequestration if they didn't agree to a budget deal, and they didn't agree to a budget deal so this was something that the president and john boehner agreed
. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt ry re jt about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts once he gets into the oval do in virginia beach almos soons speech, president obama started his. he hadirginia smat tore jim webb introducinghi the former navy secretary. president obama pulling outhis big guns down there, and it's all about these military defense issues because, susan, that is a huge industry in this state. those jobs are very important, very critical in this state. it's not a surprise to see both campaigns going after those voters. >> we know they seer going after the veterans. is there any difference in strategy between these twho candidates when it comes to dealing with veterans? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think that both campai

the world, and is not just the middle east. people are missile defense systems out of europe to appease russians. they spend $700 billion more on defense. he has tried to appease the chinese. they are expanding their sovereignty claims a round the world. the middle east policy is crumbling around it. america needs leaders. right now the only opportunity we will have is president romney. i hope you will see that. lou: thank you for being here. >> thank you. good to be with you. lou: much more on the president's speech to the united nations general assembly straight ahead. ♪ >> president obama has the lead in almost all national polls, but his lead varies widely. why? which poll should we believe? chain in green with our report. consumer confidence sores. home prices rise. the dow jones industrials take a triple digit dice. what is behind the south of? wall street legend michael holland with the answers next.

, and that includes veterans. >> question over here. >> there has been a reputation for democrats on defense. it is 30 years in the making. we have now reached the point of what that survey showed. i am wondering about the romney administration attacking the president and showing that he is fumbling on events. i think they pick the ambassador of's murder in libya and the protests around the world against the u.s., all trying to show that the president is fumbling. do you think that is a successful argument? it is all happening right now shortly before the election. >> every poll that has been taken have shown a substantial advantage for this president when it comes to the question of regarding commander in chief. i do not think that has changed even in the most recent polls. i think the democrats understand that you can be secure and you can be smart about it. spending does not have to do with millions, but how you spend a smartly. this administration has assembled military and civilians to deal with mandated cuts and did so by tying it to strategy as opposed to reversing it. i do not see that the arg
the arab minister of defense and chief of intelligence are new. to create the relationship and the situation between civilians -- create the separation between civilians and military societies. that is tricky. that was a transition that we organized well. we had countries -- mine, for example, came from a military dictatorship. we organized -- [indiscernible] that is something that not many people have experienced. i think that we should be trying to work on that direction. >> as the cold war was ending, there is a big meeting in the halls of congress. all of the senior military leaders from every european country and even the vatican was represent. i was the first speaker. my russian colleague was across the hall from me. i said, i am chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, armed forces of the united states. i live in a system whereby constitution doesn't really trust me. they only give me money for a limited time and i have to go back and ask for more. they control the purse and the even made it in the constitution that we would provide for and maintain a navy because we w
as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of voters because even though many have felt the economy come back from cataclysmic tester it didn't exactly turn into a picture of health and voters tend to be unforgiving on things like that. what's going on? the first factor is the economy. it's not great now, but it's better than it used to be and i think we are beginning to get the sense that voters are getting credit for how much things have improved relative to a disastrous economic situation in the first year. voters can remember a few years back there some political scientist who maintained they can't remember what they had for breakfast and basically they just voted what's happening. i think we see in fact there is an influence of where it went before and how people see the current incumbent in that light so as we are seeing the economy pick up a bit with consumer confidence gain strength that this is helping obama take the edge of the economic strategy to say obama is the president come is a
. >> anything else you would like to tell us that the defense committee would be helpful if we knew? >> all i would say is, you know, coming out from it in sitting here, back in london and not having access to all the things come you are driven by a perception of what is going on by the media. and i do think we are going to have some pretty difficult times ahead, that there's going to be corruption scandals and all of that, but i don't see anything that i've seen in the last year sufficiently bad to derail this strategy. and i do think we've got the right policy in terms of the time to go. we could come out earlier. he could come out earlier and in greece the risk. the corollary of that ip is listed under would be more likely. i don't think that's true. i think there comes a point where you've outlived your usefulness and coming out in an orderly a fashion by the end of 2014 will tip the balance. i think the taliban will find it difficult to sustain an insurgent the against the people when we remove their excuse they are fighting and that will tip the balance. so however difficult it is, it i
